Last year when I was in Yorkshire I didn’t know of my connection with Lily Hall, Heptonstall. Now I know that my gt gt gt grandparents lived there, William Whittam and his wife Sally (Farrar). After William died Sally had another child, Elizabeth Ann (Whittham) but that was three years after her father had died! On Elizabeth Ann’s second married she names her father as James Wrigley  who turns out to be the guy who was living next door in Lily Hall. Today I was going to Lily Hall, to be taken inside by two of the current owners, David and his wife Anne. IMG_2023IMG_2025IMG_2030IMG_2032IMG_2034
